Domains like Stocks.com.au and Stockbroker.com.au.
These domains went to the expired domain auctions where they sold for big bucks – and we’re talking over $30,000!!!!
Here’s the proof!
These prices are exclusive of GST and registration fees.
As the screenshots below show, these domains once belonged to the Goldman Sachs / JBWere alliance.
So why weren’t they renewed?
The big lesson for individuals; small business and corporates alike is to keep your “Registrant Contact Email” up to date. If you don’t, you won’t get the renewal notices, and so the domains expire. And someone – possibly your competitor – will acquire your prime digital property.
In this instance, it looks like the “registrant contact” left their employ some time ago. No one changed details. Oops!
